Good morning, Beloved.
Peter has always been my favorite. He failed. He sunk. Literally – walked on water and sunk.
Emotionally – denied the One and Only. Again. And again.
That surely sunk his high/low personality into the deepest crater.
Perhaps …his shortcomings, failures, served him. Not so much to be purged from him … or judged by them … but, for him to learn to embrace them in such a way that his struggles brought him face to face with his Savior – the Savior who saved him from himself again, and again, and again.
From the deep darkness of his soul, Peter’s struggles contributed – in a meaningful way, back into central, focused conversations with his Maker. And, after sinking like a rock (and, he really did) his conversations with God shaped him into the Creator’s solid rock.
What greater compliment, than to be called out by God Most High? You have been called. Just like Peter.
Sometimes it takes collapsing in an emotional puddle of ruin, to meet the Savior face to face.
When you meet Him here.
Mm. Be ready for the turnaround.
Embrace the struggle.
Your rock solid is coming.
